  • Summary

    Miso and eggplant is a gorgeous combination of flavours. If you've never tried it before, you're in for a treat. The traditional Japanese way of making this is not grilled, it is served with the eggplant sautéed and draped with a miso sauce which is simply a thinner version of the miso glaze (see notes for directions). By grilling this, you get an incredible caramelisation which I find irresistible, while the inside is melt-in-your-mouth. This dish can be cooked on the barbecue or on stove top, though I really encourage you to try it on the grill if you can because the smokey flavours really make this something special.

    Ingredients

    • 6 Japanese eggplants, halved lengthwise
    • 3 tbsp canola oil (or vegetable oil)
    • ¼ cup white miso ("Shire Miso)
    • 2 tbsp Mirin
    • 1 tbsp Sake (Japanese cooking wine)
    • 1 tbsp sugar
    • 1 shallot/scallion finely sliced
    • 1 tsp sesame seeds (preferably toasted)
